not to go too offsubject - but how many of our "own" did the same thing during the vietnam war - lots of "great musical names" came out of that conflict while smoking a doob or two, sitting in coffee shops, and bitched and moaned through their music partly or fully to make a name for themselves. ie Dylan, Baez, Young etc etc. Not that i don't like their music, but...............

After reading this I fully realize the Hezbollah must disarm and turn themselves in before their anti-semantic hate kills more innocent people- right on!

The Street (Beirut Haifa 2006)

The consensus ? its smell like a baby's corpse
The beautiful town has to be crushed and lost
Wipe down lovely girls with curls of oil
I'm a traitor, says "24 hours"* editor
A fifth column ? suggests NRG** wet predator

Your deterrence is a sushi bar flaming like hell
Children staining autographs on a fresh copper shell
The second biggest bank and a trampled journal
Produce a window-car sticker "victory will be ours!"
In Haifa & Beirut at a golden dawn
a pair of balding infrastructure workers were blown

Did they receive compensations? Have tenure?
Maybe they were just affiliated from HR
Had a nose and two testicles, each
On sunny holidays, loved the beach
Both the deceased from Haifa and his mate from Beirut
Used to fish with a punctured bottle
They baited bread, the fish jumped around
In the saucepan it felt happy and sound
In a new pool that I bought for my roof,
From a haggler in the alley of Metalon
Floating among yellow rubber duckies
I feel just like Arik Sharon
"I am a liberal girl", Dana Kobalio mumbles,
"But they understand only strength and battles".
In the stupid sheets of my defeated bed
We turn around like two handles

"Soldier, there comes a time when
The nation needs sacrifice and tears",
The leader claims, examining the poll in fear
The tears ? your mom's too. They will sacrifice you.
Go on, little lad, give Yatspan*** your thanks.


August 2006. The poem was translated from Hebrew by Adva Levin.

* A daily section in an Israeli newspaper
** An Israeli news website
*** Eli Yatspan - A well known Israeli TV host

War makes people deaf.

Good album, though.

I'm down with anti-semantics. Anti-semitism is another thing.
